COLUMBUS, Indiana — Bartholomew County’s largest employer will unveil its updated mission, vision and values during a public block party Wednesday in downtown Columbus.

Global diesel engine maker and power company Cummins Inc. is updating its mission, vision  and values as part of preparations for its 100th anniversary in 2019.

The updates were needed in order to be current, company spokeswoman Katie Zarich said.
